Many emotions, including frustration and satisfaction, sadness and joy, anguish and hope, depression and euphoria, anger and contentment, come from our subconscious 90% that control over our fragile conscious 10%. To make it worst our mind bounce like a tennis ball in a “present net” from our past to future.
By nature, we tend to keep our minds focused on past events or future concerns. When we live in the past or future, our mind produces emotional responses to our thoughts. When we imagine a confrontation with other people, we experience the emotions of the interaction even though it isn’t really happening. When we imagine the future or remember the past, our mind reacts as if the events were actually happening in the present.
If we consciously remember experiences from the past, or imagine situations in the future, our subconscious does not differentiate between real events and images we are forming in our mind. Our 90% of our mind, our subconscious, does not make a difference between the past future or present, just follows our information and storage as memory. The same our subconscious doesn’t recognize good or bad, moral or immoral, real or a fantasy. For us it is an exhaust work and exercise to keeping our concentration and focus in the real task we are doing.
The solution is to build a bridge of information between the two sides, subconscious and conscious, without conflict or disagreement. It is what we are doing now step by step.
